Israeli reaction to the Italian government: immediately suspend the supply of weapons

The leader of the 5 Star Movement (M5S), a populist opposition party close to the left in Italy, and former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, called on the Italian government to immediately suspend the supply of weapons to Israel.

Opposition leader Conte, who intervened last night in the “questions” session addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Tajani, in the House of Representatives, the lower house of parliament, criticized the Government’s position on the conflict Palestinian-Israeli.

Conte, leader of the M5S, which is the second largest opposition party in parliamentary arithmetic, said: “Immediately suspend the supply of weapons to Israel. My government did this with some countries at the time. “The only thing missing to achieve this is courage,” he said.

Conte also criticized the right-wing coalition government led by Giorgia Meloni for abstaining from voting on the “draft resolution calling for an urgent humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza” adopted at the United Nations on October 27, calling it a “cowardly attitude.” . Conte stated: “In the face of this massacre and the death of more than 10,000 Palestinians, we cannot limit ourselves to a few humanitarian pauses, there must be an immediate ceasefire. “What is the government doing to stop the massacre in Gaza?” he said.

In response to Giuseppe Conte’s words, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tajani, stated: “There are definitely no cowards in the seats of this government. Maybe those cowards are somewhere else. There are no cowards here. “Mr. Conte, you have been prime minister before, I ask you to use more appropriate language,” he said.
